Muscular Minimalism

I created this home for people to truly build a life within — It’s an environment designed for personal evolution.

Kim Gordon

This Venice Beach retreat offers a wholly new take on contemporary living. With its use of rugged materials and exceptional focus on movement between spaces, the residence creates a sense of what Gordon refers to as “muscular minimalism” — clean lines, organic materials and a preference for sweeping architectural gestures over intricate ornamentation. Stacked-rock walls, frame-less iron windows and under-finished raw materials create a sense of beach-inspired Brutalism. Located blocks from bustling Abbot Kinney, the home nevertheless offers a true sanctuary where residents can enjoy seamless indoor/outdoor integration, sweeping deck views and a complete flexibility of design.

  • Four bedrooms, five baths
